Yuki is Sick, Part 2

Yuki seemed like she was getting sick again last night. Her first bout of sickness passed about a week ago, but she still had some head congestion. Mix that with her reflux and pre-teething, and we’ve had a very moist baby the past week.

At least she’s not the only one sick. The whole fam got hit pretty bad the last few days — me being the last. Damn, I thought taking care of two kids was challenging enough; try throwing in lethargy, sniffling that startles Yuki awake, and being too weak to hold a 14 lb baby for long stretches.

Luckily, it’s been a rather uneventful week so far at the PDX Dad household.

That’s to change rather quickly.

Northern Spotted Owl

Northern Spotted Owl

October starts the mad, crazy time requiring group calendars and a flurry of e-mails confirming plans made months in advance. Apple tasting, apple cooking, pumpkin patch, birthdays, Halloween (woo!), pre-Thanksgiving get-togethers, Thanksgiving, post-Thanksgiving get-togethers, excursions into the Oregon wild to find that perfect holiday present (I’m thinking a Northern Spotted Owl would be cool), pre-Christmas get-togethers, stocking exchanges, Kiki’s holiday work party, Christmas, post-Christmas loot comparisons for the kids, then New Year’s.

Best part is that the schedule is so full and busy, there’s no time for Seasonal Affective Disorder.
